I’ve never been to Morocco, but as a natural perfumer I often work with botanical essences extracted from flowers that grow there. One day, feeling restless and in need of a diversion, I found myself imagining the landscape where those lovely flowers bloom.
In my mind’s eye, I saw a serene desert oasis with rose petals and orange blossoms fluttering in the breeze, and the smoke of incense curling up towards the tops of citrus trees. On the far horizon, snow-capped mountains rose like a mirage.
Inspired, I set about creating a fragrance that I hoped would capture the feeling of that beckoning oasis in the sand. The result was Mystic Rose, a mingling of the foreign and the familiar that speaks directly to the heart. It cuts through the extraneous to remind us of who we are beyond our connection to any particular person, place or thing.
A modern fragrance built around a timeless floral essence, Mystic Rose is exotic and opulent, but also deeply comforting. Its sweet, spicy-woody scent is both sensual and spiritual, as if to say that all expressions of love are but different points on the same map of the heart.

Moroccan rose is the main heart note and dominant energy in Mystic Rose. A powerhouse botanical, rose not only smells gorgeous, it also has significant therapeutic properties. Rose is an important essence in aromatherapy for its ability to open the heart and soothe inflamed emotions (among many other things).
Rose is also an aphrodisiac, and has been used since ancient times to symbolize and inspire love and romance. And in natural perfumery, rose is a sumptuous heart note with few equals (not for nothing is the rose known as the “Queen of Flowers”).
Because I use only pure botanical essences in my fragrances (no synthetic fragrance molecules, aroma chemicals or isolates, ever), Mystic Rose offers authentic aromatherapy benefits in addition to a beautiful scent. It contains thirty-two unique essences, all of which synergistically combine to create a great deal of positive energy for the wearer. Here are some of the therapeutic properties of four key Mystic Rose notes:
Moroccan Rose (rosa centifolia) — comforting, heartening, aphrodisiac, uplifting, pacifying
East Indian Sandalwood (santalum album) — relaxing, elevating, meditative, aphrodisiac, grounding
Frankincense (boswellia carterii) — purifying, revitalizing, clearing, sedating, elevating
Cardamom (elettaria cardamomum) — uplifting, refreshing, warming, soothing, aphrodisiac
So I’m sitting here at my desk, thinking about everything I have to do today and feeling antsy. I look out the window towards the horizon, and spritz myself with Mystic Rose.
Its scent quickly soothes my restless spirit. Tension leaves my body, my mind relaxes. I feel confidant and gloriously present. And I smell good, too. :) — Claudia xo
